Summary: Uterine myomas are the most common tumours of the female genital tract and with menorrhagia provide the most common indications for hysterectomy. Whilst myomectomy is a surgical alternative, it is associated with greater morbidity and a higher blood transfusion rate. Arterial embolization of myomas is a nonsurgical treatment option that can be performed as an outpatient procedure, is cheaper than myomectomy, permits preservation of reproductive potential, and may not only be associated with less morbidity than myomectomy but also may not cause adhesions which could compromise fertility. This paper details 2 cases treated by this technique.
